Unique engagement rings, single-piece jewelry, and more, sighted as Spring/Summer ‘21 best jewelry trends
by Anne Reyes,
In the age of Zoom meetings, videoconferencing, and virtual parties, dressing from the waist up seems to be the new norm for any fashion-forward netizen. This is a godsend for accessory lovers, especially those who have a penchant for luxury jewelry.
We are not just talking about unique engagement rings—we are covering the whole gamut. From trendy to traditional, this year’s jewelry trends are anything but ordinary. If you look at last year’s runway trends, most of what we have seen includes pieces from the early aughts that are more refined (stacked bangles are back!) and inclusive.
Party beads, iridescent pearls, shiny metals—these are trends that hit their peak in 2005 but are making a huge resurgence in the fashion world as we speak. We are not saying it’s a bad thing (quite the opposite, actually) as fashion trends resurface after 20 years or so. It opens up the opportunity for designers to come up with new and creative ways to make these pieces more enduring than ever.
Whether you are rediscovering your affinity for fine jewelry, wondering where to buy quality jewelry, wanting to learn about options for wedding fine jewelry rings, or exploring completely new territory, these are the jewelry trends that are worthy of a comeback. Keep reading to see which trends are fit for you.
Whimsical Garden Gems
Call Miranda Priestly if we’re being too cliche, but spring and summer are the best times to splash your jewelry repertoire a dose of color. Pinks, purples, yellows, and greens look just as good on your fingertips as they do on your favorite flowers.
Adding a pop of color to your accessories not only brightens your day but also that of the people you interact with. It creates a ripple effect that may seem superficial at first but eventually turns into something more meaningful.

With the attention drawn by face masks, it’s only right to balance them with statement jewelry. Chain-links, hoops, and studs, as well as gold and silver hardware, have evolved into the oversized territory, creating a look that is equal parts tough and glamorous. From household names like Louis Vuitton to international luxury brands like Sacai, these designers are putting the pedal to the metal come spring and summer.
How to Style: Large, statement jewelry looks best when it’s styled with basics. Think tailored blazers, a cashmere cardigan, or a simple white tee. It also goes perfectly with subdued dresses in delicate fabrics, such as silk, satin, and even linen.
Gemstones are the jewelry trend that is here to stay forever. Whether you are on the lookout for the perfect engagement ring or a stunning statement piece, diamonds can prove time and time again that they are indeed a girl’s best friend.
Heaven Roc’s Dolce Vita collection features handpicked and expertly crafted gemstones that are fit for royalty. Go head over heels for amethyst, topaz, quartz, and citrine, gorgeous stones that were made to be the center of attention.
How to Style: If you’re wearing this as an engagement ring, let the stone speak for itself. Whatever you wear this with, the stone will still be an absolute knockout because of its flawless, regal cut. However, pairing it with matching earrings will definitely take your look up a notch.
